Sample cover letter for Full Time position at UNYPP



Dear Hiring Manager for YPP,

I am addressing you to apply for the Young Professionals Program Examination Procedure in the field of Information Systems and Communication Technology.

As a post graduate in management with experience in Information Technology and Finance, I am confident that I fit the profile of Associative Information Technology Officer, as described in your official United Nations site.

Till recently I was associated with Deloitte as an Analyst and worked in the area of financial research, analysis and MIS reporting. In my role, I deployed various Software and Statistical applications to retrieve data from the capital market databases and perform valuable research on the companies that have prevailed across the globe. I was also involved in writing and updating Standard operating procedures (SOP) for projects and in training professionals in the use of software applications.

Before my stint with Deloitte I have done my Masters in Business Administration with specialization in Finance and Operations, where I have been awarded a merit scholarship for my academic performance and also for my contribution to the field of Finance and operations by publishing books and research papers.
My summer work experience as an intern with State Bank of India enabled me to gain an insight into the application of Information Technology to credit risk management system and the scope for the deployment of new tools.

Evidence of my programming skills can be seen in my responsibilities as software engineer with Infosys Technologies, where I captured the user requirements and designed documents and test cases for different phases of SDLC, created web pages by using HTML and JAVA and ensured connectivity to the database by using SQL and Oracle for a specific project. My stint with the firm has given me a sound knowledge of programming languages like Java, HTML, SQL, SPSS etc. and helped me learn how to develop and work on Software applications.

I am always indebted to my graduation in Electrical Engineering which had laid a strong foundation for honing analytical and software skills and improved my exposure to electrical design by using software like MATLAB. During my course our team developed an antigravity relay for magnetic levitation and demonstrated its commercial use in India.

I consider the actions of the United Nations Organization to be profoundly influential Worldwide, and therefore being part of this organization will provide me a good platform to apply my skills and also to acquire new skill sets.Thank you for your time and consideration.

Yours Faithfully,
